Annotationen

Killer Track von Lorde, um die es zwei Jahre lang still war. Green Light ist ein Electropop-Track mit Zähnen. Die junge Frau singt mit kratziger Stimme ihre Wut auf den Ex-Freund heraus und wünscht ihm das denkbar Übelste. Der Text ist nach wie vor wie einer aus Lordes Tagebuch. Die Sounds sind aber noch zeitgemässer geworden: grosser Ohrwurm-Pop mit eingebauter Spannung zwischen postmillennialem Folkpop und Electropop-Hymne. Er kommt aus der Mitte zwischen Ed Sheeran und Sia Furler. Das grüne Licht im Titel ist das Licht der Ampel, das die Fahrt auf der Strasse freigibt, die von der erfahrene Enttäuschung wegführt. Lorde erklimmt mit diesem Song die Stufen in den Pop-Olymp. Man darf auf ihr Album Melodrama gespannt sein.

Lyrics

[Verse 1] I do my makeup in somebody else's car We order different drinks at the same bars I know about what you did and I wanna scream the truth She thinks you love the beach, you're such a damn liar [Refrain] Those great whites, they have big teeth Hope they bite you Thought you said that you would always be in love But you're not in love no more Did it frighten you How we kissed when we danced on the light up floor? On the light up floor [Pre-Chorus] But I hear sounds in my mind Brand new sounds in my mind But honey I'll be seein' you 'ever I go But honey I'll be seein' you down every road I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it [Chorus] 'Cause honey I'll come get my things, but I can't let go I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it Oh, I wish I could get my things and just let go I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it [Verse 2] Sometimes I wake up in a different bedroom I whisper things, the city sings 'em back to you [Refrain] All those rumors, they have big teeth Hope they bite you Thought you said that you would always be in love But you're not in love no more Did it frighten you How we kissed when we danced on the light up floor? On the light up floor [Pre-Chorus] But I hear sounds in my mind Brand new sounds in my mind But honey I'll be seein' you 'ever I go But honey I'll be seein' you down every road I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it [Chorus] 'Cause honey I'll come get my things, but I can't let go I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it Oh, honey I'll come get my things, but I can't let go I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it Yes, honey I'll come get my things, but I can't let go I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it Oh, I wish I could get my things and just let go I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it [Outro] I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it
